  1. FS Alembic Essence Walnut / Mahogany 5 String

    So over the next few days, I am going to be posting a lot of my basses for sale in order to purchase a new home here in Ohio. I appreciate you taking a few minutes to take a look at my postings and hope that one of them is what you are look for.

    It is with deep regret to have to let this one go as I just recently obtained it. If some of my other basses sell, I will pull this one off immediately. This is an Alembic Essence 5 string custom bass. The walnut top is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. I really don't think that these pictures to this bass justice. In addition it has a matching headstock on both front and back. The wings are mahogany with a beautiful and perfectly straight maple neck. The bass definitely has some weight to it (like most Alembics), however, it doesn't feel "heavy" to me at all. I am asking $2500 for this bass (I'll split shipping with the buyer right down the middle).

    Here is a helpful little note from Alembic about this bass…

    "The heart of the Essence's tone is the Alembic low-pass filter, the same tone control we pioneered in 1969 when we first introduced active electronics to the musical world. With this tone control, a range of sounds from deep to bright are available with a simple twist of one knob."
